Skanska will provide client Telex SARL with construction finance for the project assisted by its newly formed project development group in the UK.
The design and build job is for a BREEAM Excellent and LEED Platinum rated 200,000 sq ft building with two roof level plant floors, and a two-storey basement.
Work will start immediately, with completion scheduled for January 2014.
Architects HKR have designed a large rectangular block, the roof line dominated by an angled top that allows roof gardens on six different levels creating a large amount of outdoor space.
This is a solution that means that different tenants on each of the top floors can have their own private space rather than share with other companies.
Crossrail tunnels will cut under the site, so the design incorporates a ring of V columns which allow loads to transfer to the outside of the building
